The Centrally-sponsored Scheme for Construction of Hostels for OBC Boys and Girls is being implemented since 1998-99 to address the problem of educational backwardness of OBCs. Very often, students from rural areas, especially those belonging to the weaker sections, discontinue their studies because of lack of secondary schools and colleges nearby and non-availability of adequate hostel facilities, at a reasonable cost, at places where such educational institutions are located. Therefore, the Scheme was initiated with a view to facilitate continuation of education by students belonging to OBCs, especially those hailing from rural and remote areas and from poor families.
The Scheme has been revised w.e.f. 2014-15. Guidelines of the revised Scheme are given below.
The Scheme aims at providing hostel facilities to students belonging to socially and educationally backward classes, especially from rural areas, to enable them to pursue secondary and higher education.
The Scheme has following provisions after revision of the Scheme in 2014-15:-
a. North Eastern Region - Rs.3.50 lakh per seat
b. Himalayan Regions - Rs.3.25 lakh per seat
c. Rest of country - Rs.3.00 lakh per seat
Or as per the schedule of the rates for the concerned State Government, whichever is lower.
(i) regions/districts not covered so far, and
(ii) Districts/towns having a large number of educational institutions.
